Number 162
For the first time in the history of lhe British post
oflice. nays The Colonies and India, tho Indian wails
havo been delivered in London under fourteen days.
The letters which left Bombay at 5 o'olook pan. on
Nove'iil'or 20t!i ware received by addressees in the city
on December I Hth at 3 o'clock p.m. Thus it was possiblo for merchants to reply the same evening, antl lot
thoir correspondents in India hear from them in a day
or two over a month. Tliis marvellous expedition was
duo to the splendid steaming qualities of the Oeoono,
the vessel of tho Peninsular and Oriental fleet wliich
took Prince Albert Victor out to India. She reached
Suez under eight days, ond covered the whole distanco
to Brindisi in twolvo days and fifteen hours, thus
maintaining nn average apood of nearly 400 knots per
day, iucluding stoppages at intermediate ports (Aden
and Suez) and detention hi tho Sue/. Canal.
When a Celestial emperor takes it into his head to
writoa post-card, that post-card, observes an exchange,
must need be what tho colonial folk would call a
"whopper." It will bo remembered that tho South
Australian people subscribed liberally for the relief of
the Chine e sufferers by tbu recent famine in the Shantung country. The Emperor of (mino has now, with
many fervent expressions of gratitude, written te
acknowledge the goodness of the colonists to hts
starving people. Tho billet-doux in whicli his imperial
majesty conveyed his sentiments was no less, indeed,
than a billot of wood "(i feet In length by two feot in
width, covered with gold-leaf." The tablet is to be
hung in the Council Chamber ot Adelaide, and as
none of tho councillors are able to tell whioh is the top
or bottom of tho missive, on interpreter is to be engaged to seo (hat tho Emperor's post- aril is hung
right side up.
A nt"'tntT just published from tbo American consul
ttt Mannheim refers to a discovery by Gorman chemists
iu tho cocoa-nut of a fatty substitute for butter. Immediately after the discovery a. firm was established
iii Mannheim for the purpose of manufacturing thu
new articlo, to which it hna given tbe namo of eoiioo-
nut buttor. .Although in existence only a yoar, it is
unablo to meet the constant demands made on it, It
employs 25 men, has a 40-liorac power ongine, und
produces daily 11,000 kilos, of butter, which it retails
itt from O&d, to 7id. per pound. The nuts come
mainly from the South Seo Islands, 'fhe new butter
is of a dear, whitish color, and io said to bo bettor
adapted for cooking than tablo purposes. It is neither
disagreeable to toate nor smell. At present it is
eiiiully need In hospitals and other State institutions,
but it is rapidly finding its way into houses where the
people avo too poor to buy butter. The working
classes aru ropidly adopting jit ill place of oleomor-
mirincp. lt in said to be singularly freo from acids,
and to lie, therefore, much cosier of digestion. In
Germany there arc about50 factories engaged in producing margarines and other artificial butter.

Council mut iu the town hall mi Saturday, January

Garratt and Daniels. A communication was rood

Thore was an interesting stabbing beo down in
Chinatown, on Dallas street, wost of Wise's livery
stable, last night. Mr. Moresby was notified that
three Chinamen had been sliced to shreds, and that
blood was flying in all directions among tho maddened
Mongolians, He was ou the scone in a few minutes,
and on going up stairs in the liouse where the fracas
had occurred, ho found a Chinaman named Ah Shin
with his head, face and neck covered with clotted
gore. Shin presented a most sanguinary spectacle,
and as nature has heaped many trade-marks of ugliness upon him, such as a wall-eye'; u wry-neck and
other defects, he is altogether a pretty looking object.
On Mr, Moresby enquiring what was the matter, Shin
pointed to a dark room; on procuring a light and entering this room, a Chinamnn named Ah How was
found trying to conceal himself. He wos immediately
taken to tho lock-up. A small and muck worn table-
knife, covered with blood, was found, ond with this
instrument the deed was done. Shin waa also taken
to the lock-up, and his wounds were attended to by
Dr. DoWblf Smith:
The citso como up this morning in the police oourt,
and numbers of witnesses testified. Tho disturbance
arose about an open window which How wonted shut,
and Shin wanted open. How abused Shin in all the
choicest terms known in the Chinese vocabulary, and
threatened to annihilate him if tho window wns not
immediately closed. Shin stuck to his point, and
How attempted to enforce his wisher) by means of tiie
deadly weapon mentioned above, Dr. Smith testified
that tiie wound wos in n dangerous place, and had it
been a little deeper might liavo been fatal.
One of the most curious Bpocteclen possible to wit:-'
noes in a British court of jus! ice was enacted when
the evidenco of Ah Shin was requested. This man is
a heathen and an idolater, and has no belief in any
hereafter, is totally ignorant of the nature of an oath,
cun neither read nor write, nud when asked where ho
expected to go when ho died said he only wanted to
go homo to China. He had never even seen joss ]iaper
burned, saucer cracked, or chicken killed iu swearing,
so his evidence could not bo taken, Tho prisoner was
very unruly and mado use of unlimited Chinese expletives while the witnesses wero giving"evidence against
hiin. His English wus limited to "too miloheo lie"
"t-m Jo'dceynu.7 "no good." and kindred choice selections, The chief of polico said that the affair was
not known at the police station until tlio arrival of
Mr. Moresby with the prisoners, Ho complained of,
the want of a telephone at the station, and said it did
nut give the police department n fair chance. His
honor concurred in those remarks. Of all places in
the city, next in importance to the lire department, it
does seem remarkable that the police station should
not have a telephone
Ah How was sent up for trial,
A quiet wedding was celebrated iu St. Paul's church,

and the Rev. H, Irwin, of Now Westminster. The
ceremony was performed by the Rev. G. H. Marwoml,
chaplain of II.M.S. Swiftsure, There wos a full
choral service, Mr. ti. F. Clinton acted as best man,
and tho Misses Junes, sisters of the bride, os bridesmaids. The bride, who is olio of the brightest and
most esteemed young ladies in Victoria socioty, has

than real, in former years the gold sent out of tho

This year it was. The fact then is tho goldmines am
